Our hydrocephalus community KNOWS resiliency! To help you stay resilient throughout the COVID-19 crisis, we launched a new series on social media called #WeAreResilient.
Many in our community have asked if hydrocephalus is considered a risk factor for severe disease with COVID-19. As a follow up to our previous post, Dr. Michael A. Williams, Chair of HA’s Medical Advisory Board, has reviewed published medical research and found that hydrocephalus has not been mentioned as a specific risk factor in adults or children.
Several people in the hydrocephalus community have expressed their concern about the novel coronavirus. After consulting with our Medical Advisory Board, read our statement and recommendations.
